PULASKI, Tenn. - In a game that featured 12 ties and 14 lead changes, the Martin Methodist Men's Basketball team rallied for an 89-79 victory over Loyola (La.) University in the Curry Christian Life Center.
The win marked career victory No. 100 for head coach Scott Combs, who is midway through his fifth season at the helm of the program.
In a seesaw affair, the RedHawks (12-7, 6-3 SSAC) trailed on numerous occasions in the first half, but never fell behind by more than four points to keep the contest within striking distance. At the break, the RedHawks were able to claw ahead to a 46-42 advantage.
But in the second half, the Wolf Pack (12-5, 5-3 SSAC) were the ones that hung around as they kept the contest close for the majority of the half and even enjoyed a pair of leads midway through the period.
The RedHawks seized control of the contest for good down the stretch, however, as they turned a 57-57 tie ballgame into an 11-point lead in less than four minutes. The 14-3 run proved to be the turning point of the contest for the RedHawks as they kept the Wolf Pack at bay down the stretch to claim the win.
The win marked a fifth straight for the RedHawks, who moved into the top four of the SSAC standings.
Senior guard Broderick Davis led the RedHawk attack with 25 points and twin brother Broderick Davis scored 19 in the victory. Senior guard Caleb Chowbay also added 19 points and Albert Lynch scored 14 to help pace the RedHawks.
The Davis brothers combined for a sizzling 7-of-8 shooting from beyond the arc as the RedHawks connected on 12-of-22 attempts from downtown for a 54.5 percent shooting clip.
The Wolf Pack were paced by Jalen Gray, who scored 18 points. Johnny Griffin, Jr. and Trey LaForge also scored 14 apiece.
